Clean your mushrooms from dirt. Don't rinse mushrooms with gills because water gets trapped in the gills. Scrub them with a brush. Porcini and button mushrooms can be rinsed but dry them well with a kitchen cloth or paper.
10 ounces Mushrooms
Cut off any bad ends. The caps of button mushrooms can be peeled too but that's optional. You can choose to cut your mushrooms in half or to slice them. It depends on the mushroom variety and how you want to use them when dried.
Place mushrooms on a dehydrator tray. Spread them out so that they all have place.
Stack trays over each other in the dehydrator. 10 oz/280 gm mushrooms fill up about 1 tray.
Dry your mushrooms over a medium dehydrator heat setting at around 135 Fahrenheit or 50 Celsius. Keep them to dry for 6 to 8 hours or until dry enough.
Store dried mushrooms in an airtight container and use them as needed.
You can use shiitake, porcini, chanterelle, button mushrooms or enoki to dry.
